Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce CEO, Helen Down says, “We’re very excited to be at the Lower Hutt Events Centre in 2019. It gives us a fabulously large, modern space for the main exhibition areas, various meeting spaces, exhibitors’ lounge and three excellent seminar rooms. There is the large Tutaki Café right on site, and the venue also opens out onto the newly developed Riddiford Gardens. With it all being on one level it is the perfect space for the event. It is going to work very well for both exhibitors and visitors.”

Scheduled for Tuesday 7th May, the Expo will span a full 12 hours, opening at 7.30am with a Business Breakfast with well-known Economist Bernard Hickey hosted by Mediaworks.
